  Thanks Chip! Good information.  I am due for a new phone in December.  So, I 
should be right on time with new updates.

    Something like it … but the idea with NFC is that you transfer information 
directly from your Iphone to a merchants terminal, without going through any 
internet or web service (it sounds like passbook is having to act as an 
intermediate service).  And of course, it handles financial transfers, and 
other transfers.  You can touch one Iphone to another to transfer songs, 
business card info, etc. using NFC.  It’s secure, no one can intercept the 
communication, and it doesn’t go through any internet links routers or bridges 
where it could be tampered with or delayed.

     

    There are supposedly more than 200 thousand merchants who now have 
creditcard machines with NFC technology already in place, ready for this means 
of payment.  Soda machines and other low-cost purchases are also supposedly 
ready to be retro-fitted with NFC financial transfer hardware.   However, it 
does require new hardware; it cannot be done with existing phones or tablets 
which do not have the NFC antenna.

    Hello Chip and others interested in this thread:

    What  you are describing below sounds a lot like the new feature in IOS6  
called PASSBOOK. 

     

    Your boarding passes, movie tickets, retail coupons, loyalty cards, and 
more are now all in one place. With Passbook, you can scan your iPhone or iPod 
touch to check in for a flight, get into a movie, and redeem a coupon. You can 
also see when your coupons expire, where your concert seats are, and the 
balance left on that all-important coffee bar card. Wake your iPhone or iPod 
touch, and passes appear on your Lock screen at the appropriate time and place 
— like when you reach the airport or walk into the store to redeem your gift 
card or coupon. And if your gate changes after you’ve checked in for your 
flight, Passbook will even alert you to make sure you’re not relaxing in the 
wrong terminal.

    Thanks Lynn.  

     

    Also, for anyone considering buying an I-phone, you may want to wait until 
the I-phone five comes out (rumored to be announced in the next few weeks), as 
it will have a new technology built-in (called near-field communications) which 
allows the phone to be used as an electronic wallet or creditcard; just touch 
it to a pay station and it instantly pays the coke machine, restaurant, etc., 
including the equivalent of showing your “library card” or “customer rewards 
card” etc.  I believe the Google Nexus and some other Android smart phones 
already have this.

    Hay look what IOS6 does for accessibility; VoiceOver, the revolutionary 
screen reader for blind and low-vision users, is now integrated with Maps, 
AssistiveTouch, and Zoom.. 

     

    Below is the link for the new IOS6A features
